The old pound coin is going out of circulation

September 26th, 2017< by Peter Sutton --> · No Comments

We’ll not be accepting it as by the time BristolCon rolls round the round pound coin will no longer be legal tender. Make sure you raid your piggy banks, do a good rummage down the back of the sofa and grab the old pounds and spend them before the 15th October!
